How to watch F1 live on TV and online

When it rains, it pours, with Ferrari and Charles Leclerc getting the worse of the downpour with a botched strategy at the Monaco Grand Prix that led to the Monegasque driver losing more points. Leclerc will be hoping to get his championship challenge back on track at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

After his surprise win Sergio Perez has hauled himself into the mix for the championship, and Mercedes will be looking to bounce back (though hopefully not literally) after encountering more issues with their car. Further down the pack, we’re interested in how Danny Ricciardo’s season progresses as rumours circle in the F1 paddock that his McLaren seat could be in danger if performances don’t improve.

The Baku street circuit is one of the fastest on the calendar, with long straights and plenty of opportunities to slipstream and overtake. There have been plenty of incidents and drama in recent Baku races, as the 2021 edition saw Max Verstappen spectacularly crash out a few laps from the end.

Hopefully this year’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix will be one of the more exciting races. If you’re looking to catch the action this weekend, here’s how to watch the Azerbaijan F1 Grand Prix on TV and online.
